Hi, Is this the right forum for troubleshooting / issues with my julia 

I have kept having problems with packages giving error on precompile, 
rendering julia unusable. I then reinstalled julia-0.5-rc4, and removed my 
.julia folder from my home dir to do a fresh install. Now, Julia fails with 
an error message when I do Pkg.update():

julia> Pkg.update()
INFO: Initializing package repository /Users/michael/.julia/v0.5
INFO: Cloning METADATA from https://github.com/JuliaLang/METADATA.jl

::Vararg{Any,N}) at ./pkg/dir.jl:28
 in update() at ./pkg/pkg.jl:210

I assums that a completely clean install should work. Are there keys to 
delete etc that will give me a properly clean install? I am on Mac OS X 
(newest version).
